Rules Tab for Image Fields

The Rules tab is only available for Interactive Designer templates; this entire article is only applicable to templates that use the Interactive Designer. 
 
The Rules tab allows you to control what your customer can and cannot do with a field. These permissions are set on a per-field basis, so different fields in a template can have different permissions.
 
 
 
 
The permissions are as follows:
 
Can delete field: Check this box to allow your client to delete the field during customization of the template.
 
Can move field: Check this box to allow your client to move the field to a different location on the template during customization.
 
Can resize field: Check this box to allow your client to change the width and/or height of the field during customization. If you wish to constrain the field to a certain size range, you can enter minimum and maximum widths and heights in the boxes to the right (see more details below).
 
Can rotate field: Check this box to allow your client to change the field's rotation during customization.
 
Can change z-order: Check this box to allow your client to change the field's stacking order (i.e. move the field toward the foreground or background) during customization. Please note that checking this box does not allow your client to move this field above any fields set as overlay fields (ones that have a stacking order in the Format tab of between 101 and 110).
 
Can put behind background: Check this box to allow your client to put the field behind the background during customization. Note that if your background has no area of transparency and your client moves the field behind the background, this field will not be visible in the preview or master PDF.
 
Can change the opacity: Check this box to allow your client to change the opacity of the image in this field.

Cropping: Drop down menu that controls cropping settings for User Entry Images.
  • Preserve aspect ratio: The cropping selection will always be in the same aspect ratio as the image field. 
     
  • No cropping:  The image is uploaded without any cropping options, the image will be resized to fit the proportions of the image field.
     
  • Crop to any aspect ratio: The cropping selection can be changed from the image field aspect ratio, the image will be resized to fit the proportions of the image field. 
 
Minimum field size: If you have checked "Can resize field" but wish to constrain the field to a specific size range, enter a minimum width and height for the field here. Your client will not be able to make the field any smaller than this during customization. The unit of measurement for this option is whatever you have selected from the Define Units dropdown menu at the top right of the page.
 
Maximum field size: If you have checked "Can resize field" but wish to constrain the field to a specific size range, enter a maximum width and height for the field here. Your client will not be able to make the field any larger than this during customization. The unit of measurement for this option is whatever you have selected from the Define Units dropdown menu at the top right of the page.
 
Can change border: Check this box to allow your customer to change the color and size of the image border. If you wish to constrain the border color to a specific palette of colors, make sure it is selected from the Color Palette dropdown menu in the field's Format tab.
